9:06am
the charm. i asked the candidates during this tough economic time what they think they can do to help this county survive a shrinking budget. here is what they said? >> it's almost better to manage in hard times because then it tells you what your priorities are. and i made it clear my priorities are education and public safety and we have to figure out ways outside of that to bring money in. because the pie is only so big. it's like a pizza. it's not growing any longer. i don't care how you slice it, it's still the same pizza been we -- and we need to make that the whole and the spokes and that's how we'll open. >> reporter: and there are state primaries, senators and delegates and the top prosecutor job is up for grabs and there are several running in the democratic primary with a chance to run that seat.

9:14am
we are about to discuss a topic that can be hard to talk about and listen to, but it is extremely important information. so if you have small children watching you may want to send
9:15am
them to the other room. later today a subcommittee will hold a hearing about rape and why don't more victims come forward and how we can work to change the trend. katherine hull with the rape abuse and in seventy national network is with us this morning. >> good morning. >> and julie wild who is a rape survivor. both women join us to talk about this extremely important topic. and katherine. let me start with you. the hearing today is at 2:15. why are we looking at this issue and i'm sure you'll tell us its way overdue. >> absolutely. this is a crime that happens every two minutes. every two minutes someone in the u.s. is sexually assaulted. and this is one of the least reported crimes. we really need to examine why victims are not coming forward and also more importantly how
9:16am
is this impacting conviction rates? currently 15 out of every 16 rapists will never spend a day in jail and that means they're out on the street and readily available to kit more crimes. >> are youen youraged -- are you encouraged we are talking about this? >> absolutely. that we talk about its prevalent but that there is a support network for survivors and to help the help they deserve following an attack. >> julie, you are someone who is speaking out and by doing that is empowering other men and women, mainly woman, who have been the victims of sexual violence. you are testifying today? >> yes. >> if you could tell us your story and you have chosen to be so vocal about your story. >> my story begins october 16th, 2002. my son and i went to pick up my
9:17am
daughter from church preschool at 12:00 noon in the middle of the day in a very safe day in the middle of miami and i was carjacked and driven out of the everglades. i was raped four times in the presence of my children. after i returned, many hours later, beaten and bloody, my attacker simply walked away from the car and that was that and i was left to deal with the aftermath of what happens to a person and to a family when they've been violently assaulted. >> was the person ever brought to justice? >> he was. it was an extremely long process. it was a four-year process from the time i called 911 until the time the sentence was handed down. but i'm proud to say he received seven consecutive life sentences plus 15 years for what he did to my family. >> you had the fortitude to stick with this. you had the support to do this. when a lot of people, i would imagine, because it is a painful topic, simply don't want to deal with it.
9:18am
do you think that that lends itself to this low reporting of cases. is it young people or students don't report this and 10% of men are raped and hardly any of them report it. do you think it's too painful. >> absolutely. and you feel like you're being violated all over again every time you talk about the story. but in many case i was given outstanding support from the officers at the scene, to the rape treatment center to the state's attorney's office that handled my case. they all sustained me through the process. even when giving up seems like the easiest thing to do, they kept encouraging me to push on and at the end of the four years it paid off because this man will serve seven full life sentences behind bars. >> katherine, the truth behind the matter is, as you said, a lot of the perpetrators never
9:19am
spend one day in jail. what are you hoping this hearing will do and what this might be the catalyst for? >> we're hoping the hearing will be able to examine the stories and speak with experts that are familiar with the issues and what are the barriers to reporting and how can we look at those barriers and inform victims and potential victims of availability to report. we also want to look at the issues happening in our criminal justice system and our courts loving to move forward with prosecution. we know that these are clear criminals and they're not only raping. their victims and committing other crimes. so the sooner we can get these individuals off the street, the safer our community will be. >> i want to pass along the
9:20am
number to the sexual assault hotline, it's 800-656-hope. and i wonder if there are things you can pass on to those not wanting to testify or a victim who feels like a shell of their former self. >> i want them to know that there is support through rain, rape abuse and in seventy -- incest nationally. and closure is not a myth, it is a real part of healing and it's not until you take the steps and address what happened, you don't niecely even to report what happened, although i deally that's what we are working for. and you need to take the steps to healing and there are people out there willing to help you do that. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> tony over to you. president barack obama
9:21am
showed up at a home in fairfax talking about the economy. >> it's a beautiful neighborhood. >> before i say anything more, i'm remiss -- >> the president took a break from formal speeches to discuss plans for reviving the economy. he spoke to people at a school and said small businesses and in vesting are the keys to success. >> if we can get small businesses growing and in vesting and opening their doors and hiring new workers, that's probably going to be the area where we can make the most progress over the next year in terms of accelerating unemployment and reducing the unemployment rate. >> the president is hoping the senate will pass the small business and jobs bill but republicans are not in favor of another stimulus saying they were not allowed to propose the

9:36am
when you go to the farmer's market you get some of the eggs that were laid that morning. you have a little longer in terms of how long you can use them, up to a month. >> but when you get those home should you refrigerate? >> right away. and you should use a closed container and always make sure you put it in the coldest part of your refrigerator. should be a stable temperature of about 40 degrees sente grade. >> and a lot of refrigerators come with the handy egg caddies and for the longest time i was taking them out of the carton. >> and that's not good. particularly if it's on the door. because opening and closing the door, you are exposing them to temperatures that are unstable. >> so the key is to keep it at a consistent level. >> and it does start at the shore, you feed to look to make
9:37am
sure ey are kept cold. and check the refrigerate date -- the expiration date. use them by that date. that's what the expire means. >> does the expiration date take into account the seven-day lag? >> yes. and you can get a number of different branded eggs which have the expiration date on them also, but they have the addition of having extra nutrition to them. but when you get them home, i bring mine home in a refrigerated bag to be on the safe side and put them in the refrigerator. but what happens if you open them and a couple have broken. you don't have to toss them. if you put them in an air tight container and use them within a couple of days. >> and you talk about when people are cooking with eggs, you only want to use the number of eggs that you want to use. don't take all of them out. >> first of all they cook better when they are at room temperature but why have them
9:38am
all sitting out when you are only going to use a couple. one your hands before you start cooking and make sure the surfaces are clean. and then after any utensil you use, i just put it right in the dish machine, but get it off the counter so you don't cause contamination. >> because it is easy for the bacteria to cross. >> yes. >> very g. and you mention people should cook their eggs earlier. and we know the scene in the movie rocky and some people still drink the raw eggs for protein. >> no raw eggs. if you want extra protein, just get dried eggs and mix them in. >> the powders eggs? >> yes. and you can get eggs in cartons now in the refrigerated section. they also have to be refrigerated. that's a convenience thing.

we want to clarify something we reported about the primary race for prince george's county executive. >> we stated that democratic candidate rushern baker was not available for comment until an evening event which is why we did not hear from him in our report. we want to make sure viewers know that was the situation yesterday. not today. in fact stacy cohan spoke with baker this morning and shared his comments earlier this hour. >> very good. now we've got tucker barns with a look at the five-day forecast. >> great looking day. in fact temperatures just a little cooler than yesterday with a nice breeze out of the north and west. 82 for an afternoon high. notice the next couple of days, a lot of sunshine. and clouding up late on the day on thursday. we need the rain. we'll get light showers for the first part of friday
